Book Description This is a fascinating account of some of the most notorious, bizarre and baffling cases of murder committed in the county of Monmouthshire. Gripping chronicles of murders across Monmouthshire - from Abergavenny to Abertillery, Rogerstone to Risca, Newport to Usk - written in an easy-to-read style. From the 'tragedy of fearful character' at Llangibby in 1878 to the 'Forest Murder Riddle' of 1996, this book catalogues a series of notorious and bizarre cases, often taking the reader from the scene of the crime to the manhunt, and from the courtroom to the cell and often beyond - to the 'place of execution'. The gruesome and morbid tales in this book are sure to attract local / national press coverage! It contains significant archive materials - newspaper clippings, b/w photographs, line drawings etc. A similar title 'For Whom the Bell Tolls: A Century of Executions' was extremely successful - outselling Harry Potter in Waterstones, Swansea during one week! About the Author Roger Williams was born in Newport in 1938 and still lives in the city. He is much in demand by local history groups, and has been a member of the Welsh Arts Council Writers on Tour scheme for more than a decade, giving talks to writers groups across south Wales. He is also a creative writing tutor for Caerphilly Borough Council.

The Weston family, hailing from Osage County...
Advantages: friendly, great atmosphere at all home games Disadvantages: The division that we are in!!and ticket prices
...After a much better season than last year and seeing magicdaps (Lee Trundle) play I have decided to write a review on Swansea City FC
Here is a brief history
Before the Football Stadium was built, children would like to play football on the dirt ground which had vetch growing on it.(Vetch was a cabbage like plant used as cow feed) By 1911, the field was available for rent as the owners...

Review of SwanseaCity
Advantages: Beautiful coves and beaches, good shopping and plenty of parking Disadvantages: None for me
...A place I have enjoyed visiting ever since I was a child is Swansea, South Wales and although my earlier memories are somewhat vague I can vividly recall spending a considerable amount of time with my parents building sand castles on one of the beautiful beaches that the City has to offer. What I particularly love about Swansea is that in additional to enjoying the relaxation of the beaches...
